Jeff’s epic journey to battle against prostate cancer raises £300,000

31 March 2016

Soccer Saturday's Jeff Stelling's epic charity walk to help in the battle against prostate cancer - which included a stop-off at Sheffield United's Bramall Lane stadium - has raised more than £300,000.

The Sky Sports presenter, who teamed up with men's health organisation Prostate Cancer UK to the money, was joined by many representatives from the Blades when he walked through South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire.

He stopped off at Bramall Lane halfway through 10 walking marathons in 10 days, from his beloved Hartlepool United to a finishing point at Wembley Stadium yesterday.

At Sheffield United's he was greeted by Blades fans and club personnel including co-owner Kevin McCabe. Jeff received donations from Mr McCabe, on behalf of Sheffield United, Angela Bullivant from Westfield Health, Martin Green from Redtooth and Chris Steer from Pyramid Carpets.

Mr McCabe said: "Jeff's achievement is fantastic and we are delighted to have supported him along the way."

En-route, he was joined by famous friends and colleagues and people affected by prostate cancer.

Jeff said: "I'm not sure how I made it. I can only thank the people who walked with us, the celebrities who turned out to support us, the football clubs we visited en-route for their hospitality and, most importantly, the public for their generosity.

"It's been one of the most humbling and inspiring experiences of my life, and I will never forget it."

Prostate Cancer UK is the Official Charity Partner of The Football League.
